Available via www.brithammer.com/books

Years ago I met Brit Hammer when she interviewed me for an article in her online magazine, Earth, Wind and Tiles. we’ve kept in touch over the years and I have come to know Brit and discover what an amazing person she is. For, Brit is kind and honest, selfless, extremely bright, talented, generous, wise – you get the picture. Brit has been really encouraging me to write my own book, which will be in response to the letters I get from around the world asking various questions about my process – the most frequent being, “what adhesive do you use? – and so I have started and am 4 pages into it and it will be available soon.

Today, however, Brit’s book is finally available to order. The book features the work of 5 international mosaic artists whose work she is most in admiration of and I am honored to be one of them. My pages can be seen here.

I will be joining Brit at the SAMA conference in March in San Diego and keeping her company as she signs copies of her books and I can’t wait for the chance to spend a few days together.

Sometimes people just show up at your “doorstep” in life and the most amazing of doorbells will ring. Answering that doorbell has been an overwhemliming experience for me.

I hopy you will all enjoy this book as much as I am enjoying my copy. Oh my – what amazing company I am in betwixt these pages. My bedfellows are a wondrous sort.

Hopefully this will not increase my pest population for, in an effort to not be straightjacketed, I have decided that the fruitflies and mice and skunks and Brown Recluse spiders stop by to watch me work, rather than stalk and try to get me.

Fruit flies seem to love wet grout, by the way, with the acrylic additive being the cherry on top that they clamor for. All that… for my book. Love ya, bye.
